I watched for the first time and was surprised to see a group of people dressing like chefs but yelling and fighting against each other, running around a kitchen, not knowing what to do, but cust. The show doesn't seem to focus on food preparation or ingredients searching but instead, highlights the distressful relationship between a bunch of strangers that not even act well. A real shame to a class of professionals who are so fine and sensitive. It should be qualified as a drama show, not for foodies. Now, for you guys looking for a chance on TV, put up a british or Aussie accent and you're
I have never seen such a rotten tempered individual as the guy who is the master chef on this show. I think his attitude is beyond bad. I watched this show several times and I have never-not once-seen this master chef pay ANYONE a compliment of any kind. I have seen him call one chefs work after another garbage as if nobody but him can cook. The thing is-you really have no idea of he actually can cook because of the medium of television. Wouldn't it be a hoot of he was the worst chef on the planet? He just might be. A sign of brains is complimenting another persons work-which he seems incapable of doing-perhaps because he can't cook worth a rolling donut himself. This is one show that shouldn't be on the biggest irony of fancy restaurants is never even mentioned-that often customers are paying high prices for ordinary grocery store cuts of meat. Unless a restaurant has access to meat that was organically raised they can't be a gourmet restaurant. That is the key issue that divides "wanna be" gourmet restaurants & genuine gourmet restaurants-and thats not even a cooking related issue. Next time you go to a fancy place ask them what kind of meat they they can't answer you don't order.
I didn't like Dan's personality, but he had talent- obviously he can cook goat- and the entire team turned him into a scape goat. LOL. I felt like I was watching Mean Girls all over again. I think we need to encompass that stereotype that only girls can be catty and bitchy to guys prissier than my eight year old sister. I think Barret needed to leave because he turned Dan into a scape goat to move his own faults -such as his inability to actually cook food (God forbid that you come to a cooking show to actually cook)-onto someone else. The guy can't even cook a chicken. I'm no expert, but I've never made a raw chicken. I don't even get raw chicken from McDonalds and I've seen a lot of nasty stuff behind that counter. Not to mention that I've never received a cold hamburger from McDonald's either. Also, Michael needs to get off his high horse. I see him correcting a lot of people, and yet I don't see him following his own advice. I mean, hello, you cooked goat that can only "be served to [my] Someone needs to get him off the show. I love how once he shifts the blame to someone else's raw chicken, he immediately climes back on his stallion and pretends that like he's NOT the reason the guys lost a free trip to an amazing aquarium. And sassy black lady needs to get over her fear of penguins. They're adorable animals. I mean c'mon, they're like 1/20th of your size.
I used to watch Hell's Kitchen and loved it, but I turned it off during the first episode this season. Why do you have so many angry, argumentative wierd people. It would be so much better if you had great cooks like on Master Chef.
I always feel like there will be a really good african american cook on hells kitchen but chef ramsey still finds some reason to get rid of them. I also find this true to be on many other famous cooking shows like top chef and food network. Which is really interesting. I find that there is always something the black person is messing up on when it gets close. i wish that there were more supporters in the "food gourmet, expert community" for african americans to have a place as well.
Everyone who wonders why so many idiots are featured on this show must be blind or completely ignorant. RATINGS. That's it. The bitches that no one likes and the idiots who don't know anything are popular for dramatic television such as this. You take Chef Ramsey's over the top attitude and his exceptionally high standards and you have a perfect storm for TV.
FOR FUCK'S SAKE, CAN WE GET THE SOUND CHOREOGRAPHER ANY MORE THAN JUST THE SAME 6 FUCKING SOUND EFFECTS, PLEEEASE?!?!?!
I am sick to death of hearing either a spoon tapping a pan (the awkward moment), or the high-pitched metallic whine ("it's raw! Touch it, touch it!") or the wire-brush on hats or any of the other same old sound effects used on EVERY FUCKING TV SHOW!!!
The music and sound ques of this show make me sicker than any other, as they're used so over the fucking board to the point of being deliberately annoying.
And the NEXT EPISODE trailers are RIDICULOUS!!!
How many times do you really need to ZOOM IN (don't forget that awesome 'ZOOM' sound-effect) to create a feeling of intensity or drama? I've seen more restraint from Indian soap operas! I swear someone has a seizure or a stroke from all the bright flashes in-between the intense close-ups every time FOX plays one of their "on the next Hell's Kitchen..." trailers.
And, is it just me, or have I seen this cast before? A token pretty blonde, the macho-self important douche bag, the obese sassy chic who's been around and knows the score, the angry, butch militant lesbian, the smooth foreigner with a sexy accent, the fat guy, oh and don't forget, each team gets ONE BLACK PERSON! Sorry guys, but FOX doesn't wanna appear racist, so just go ahead and kick them off or gang up on them A.S.A.P.
I'm blown away that anybody with an IQ higher than a rock isn't offended at how stupid this show takes them to be.
As a viewer, you're told about the big prize waiting at the end of the show from the beginning, and Ramsay constantly reminds you of how IMPORTANT and how PRESTIGIOUS, this "Executive Chef" position is. But the whole thing is a farce! THERE IS NO EXECUTIVE CHEF POSITION. It's a made up position, a meaningless term for more than 60 other qualified chefs who have the all-important (shit-paying) job of making hotel meals and never getting to so much as scream "IT'S RAAAAW! PATHETIC!!!"
This is why you gotta laugh every time someone begins or ends a sentence on that show with "...this is a dream come true!"
This is one of the most UNREALISTIC reality TV shows EVER! I'm starting to wonder whether these are all just actors instead of contestants.
I'm so sad that Kimmie left. She was my favorite. My opinion is that ROBYN should have went home. She had horrible chicken,. Not once.. BUT TWICE!!!! The first time it was raw the first time. And the second time it was just bloody. That can kill someone. Kimmie all she had was burnt a little catfish. But Robyn should have went home. Kimmie should have got the black jacket. Robyn needs to go home cuz she has been up for elimination 5 times.
How can chef Ramsey let half these people even compete? Some are so fat and sweaty, all over the dishes they make. It's sick. Then some others look as if they shower once a week. Eww food goes in your mouth, please wash yourselves. Very poor cast, chef Ramsey, the show is going downhill.
how do these morons just screw up a simple diner service and then get up in the camera and talk trash about how good they are and how bad the rest are? in my day we called these guys shoemakers. they've ruined more restaurants than bad food.
I can't take this anymore. EVERY CHALLENGE IS THE SAME !! It is always tied going to the last person !! WHY !! Also, every time someone's dish does not get chosen, that team loses because they didn't choose that dish. PLEASE CHANGE THE SCRIPT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE !!
what happend to this show??????????? it has turned out to be one of the nastiest & ugliest shows on tv.where do they find some of these lowlife scumbags. who the f*** would want any of those loosers cooking in a professional kitchen, especially the girls team, i.e.(that robin & the fat bitch). clean the trash up & get back to competeing & clean entertainment.
I love the show. Thought of a good challenge for your chefs. Allergies. My wife is allergic to onions, several friends are allergic to gluton, and others peanuts. When we go to fine dining restaurants we alert the wait staff. The chef always comes to our table to understand our conditions, makes suggestions, and then prepares incredible dishes. The chef usually returns during the service and checks in with us. When we report our absolute pleasure the chef just beams. One can tell he is a pro, concerned for our experience, and proud of his innovations. I think this would be a great challenge or even harder mix it up in the dining service. Man oh man. Chef Ramsey could have a hay day with this one at the pass.
Again, love the show and hope many seasons to come.
Love the show HELL'S KITCHEN, love the drama and the pressure......BUT, some of the contestants attidudes are so ugly, I would never eat in a restaurant whereas they were the head chef, for I believe their horrible energies would taint the food I were to consume. This season specifically Robin = Nasty. Kimmie = ugly more inside than out, and Clemenza, just hate the idea of a chefs sweat possibly in my meal. Rock on Gordon!......D~,
PLEASE END THE OBVIOUS PER-PLANNING OF CERTAIN SCENES AND EMOTIONS. DON'T STRAY FAR OFF THE ORIGINAL DESIGN. MY GIRL AND I , AND MANY OF OUR FRIENDS FIND THAT THE SHOW IS TAKING A WRONG TURN WITH THIS FAUX PLAY, KEEP IT REAL!! SHOW MORE COOKING AND TRUE BANTER, DON'T HAVE THE COOKS ACT FROM A SCRIPT. THEY ARE NOT ACTORS AND THE WHOLE CHARADE IS OBVIOUSLY SCRIPTED. WE STILL WATCH, BUT ENJOY LESS. SINCERELY, JOY & DUANE
RE: Chef Gordon Ramsey berates and belittles each of the 12 contestants not only for our amusement but for their own personal growth. It really works!
I have watched ONE episode, and have never met him, but I HAVE had an extrememly abusive employer in the past. As a matter of fact, I was the ONLY person originally from Canada. When I lodged a complaint with the office manager, I was told, "You'll find no better out there." That was a load of crap. I have never found WORSE, until I watched this show. How does that "Improve Personal Growth"? Speakinjg as someone who has gone through that, it doesn't. Anyone who has given this a 10 out of 10, or calls this show "Funny", you all need to smack yourselves and see this for what it really is. ABUSE!
This man knows how to put you in a pressure cooker when it comes to cooking on this show. I can't imagine what life is sitting beside this man... he's full of sarcasm, great food advice, and more. I love how the chefs time themselves to make dishes... cooking and food are often overlooked when it comes to how much labor and love you put into it. This is a great show for anyone who loves food as much as I do!
Hell's Kitchen is one of those food shows (which I never really cared for) that's actually really good. While it is boring in the beginning and ending, when the chef starts to make the food, that's when it gets good, it's also the only reason I watch it, it is fun to watch Chef Ramsey yell at everybody for making a little mistake, not to mention hundreds of people are in the resteraunt watching them, all I can say is that I would definetely pay 90 dollars to dine there, just for the entertainment, but after the chef cooking is done, there's really no other reason to watch the show.
I can't believe that this show is no longer about integrity in a skilled profession, but rather about ratings. I have actually stopped watching, and as I bet with my husband, when I stopped watching 5 episodes ago, that Elise is in to the end. Ramsey is either boinking her or keeping her on for all the wrong reasons. While her aggressiveness might help, she is also a liar, a cheat and definitely not a team player. rather than focusing on cooking, these competitors have to deal with ghetto drama.
I would not work with her in any kitchen, and I am a sous chef. She does not command any respect. She will end up in the doggy doo pile in real like. Poor thing. NOT.. Pity, i used to love the show. Now its all American ratings.......Piss poor
Ramsey is pulling the same thing he pulled on other HK's stoking the ratings. He is so false now not be be belived. How many think Alise is deserving a black jacket? She is a catalyst to keep the ratings up.
I've seen this before in HK's the one who is the most obnoxious andcombativeand not a team player or leader is placed in a position to make the ratings increase to the detriment to Chef Ramsey's own honor. Chef Ramsey has no honor any longer. He is adrift in chasing ratings. Watch, before its over Ramsey will send Alisa home at the expense of the two others who were better than her. Or he will name her the chef for the BK and find out that that kitchen will go down hill. I would urge every one write any sponsors of HK and tell them you are sick of pulling a ratings bait. The only way Ramsey is going to play fair is by sponsor pressure.
Thank you for a great show but how about spicing it up with several special challenges. Prepare a meal for a family on restrictive diet such as: "No pasta, No rice, No potatoes, No bread, No sugar, No yogert, No fruit juice". This is what I live with. Try to make is taste good and easy to fix so that a mom could fix it after working all day. Or can be cooked on days off and then frozen so that it can be warmed up later in the week. And I would love to have a copy of what ever you come up with. Broiled meat and salads are getting very old. Thank you Chief.
This is one of the best reality shows ever! I've seen all of the eight seasons. Two teams go head to head in a restaurant. They begin by showing their signature dish. Most of the time Ramsay isn't impressed. The services are in the beginning really bad. Some cooks are bad, arrogant or very plane. people are send home by Ramsay. There are so many conflicts between the contestants sometimes the best chef is put up for elimination. And the pressure is high every time. They have challenges like the blindfolded taste test the create your own dish from a few ingredients. cut salmon in the right amounts. Every time the losers have to do disgusting chores like cleaning up or taking in heavy deliveries. The winners get prices like visiting a top restaurant or a fun day at the Beach or amusement park. There is a new team shake up later when six chefs remain there is only one team left. The chefs cant hide behind others as much and they begin to undermine the others. Until two remain they get to dress up the restaurant and pick their former teammates to go head to head.
I give this show a 8.5 but its is becoming repetitive a bit. I like the fact that Ramsay is a personality but he is so over the top sometimes. He swears at the contestants he kicks garbage cans he tosses pans. And there are so many tides in challenges that you start to think that its rigged. Ramsay saying i'm gonna do something I've never done before. Or threatening to close the restaurant. Really bad contestants get to stay for weeks even when Ramsay is so hard on them. It has become emotional abuse you have to be a strong person to survive this show. That's what sets it apart from other shows. The constant pressure to perform your other teammates how might sabotage you. definitely exciting TV.
